520    |bWater infrastructure systems are essential for 
       sustaining societal quality of life. However, they face a 
       variety of challenges and potential threats to sustained 
       performance, including ageing, deterioration, underfunding,
       disruptive events, and population growth, among others. 
       Infrastructure Asset Management can contribute 
       significantly to address those challenges and sustain 
       system performance in the long term. Current 
       infrastructure asset management frameworks focus mostly on
       performance management, and although sustainability and 
       resiliency management are considered at some degree, it is
       necessary to advance the understanding and integration of 
       more practical and comprehensive sustainability and 
       resiliency enhancing methods and tools into the asset 
       management practice mainstream. Infrastructure 
       sustainability and resilience are still predominantly 
       academic topics, but there are enough practical advances 
       to start integrating and relating them with current asset 
       management mainstream discourse. Furthermore, the 
       integration of infrastructure sustainability and 
       resilience methodologies with asset management is 
       convenient given the increase in risks to infrastructure 
       performance worldwide. This Primer presents an integrated 
       understanding of Water Infrastructure Management in terms 
       of Performance Management, Sustainability Management, and 
       Resiliency Management. The document also presents a 
       discussion on the state-of-the-literature and the state-of
       -the-practice on these three infrastructure management 
       topics as observed by the WATERiD research team while 
       developing the national knowledge database. Finally, this 
       Primer compares both the theoretical and practical domains
       in order to identify gaps and formulate recommendations 
       for improving holistic water infrastructure asset 
       management and also advancing integrated performance, 
       sustainability, and resiliency management theory and 
       practices in the water sector.
